Middle Atlantic introduces HRF half-rack systems
February 16, 2012
Middle Atlantic Products is introducing the new HRF Series Half Rack family of products that will also serve to help develop an ECIA standard for the half-width rack format.
The new HRF Series half-racks, which incorporate the dimensions of the proposed standard, feature a low-profile design and compact dimensions. An offset cable tie area keeps their overall width to a slim 10.625in, which makes them an important off-the-shelf system for maximizing the amount of usable rack space in confined areas. These dimensions also allow the HRF Series to be used with half-rack equipment from a variety of manufacturers.
The HRF Series half-racks also feature a strong welded frame that enables equipment to be preloaded and transported to the installation site. Initial models are available in eight- and 12-space useable racking height configurations with available mounting shelves that include a pattern of holes and slots that accommodate any device-mounting pattern. The line of complementary accessories for the series also includes a high-static pressure blower to exhaust heat, as well as blank and vented panels to complete the installation.
